A sustained high-temperature fusion plasma regime facilitated by fast ions
Prof. Yong-Su Na
Nuclear fusion is one of the most attractive alternatives to carbon-dependent energy sources1. Harnessing energy from nuclear fusion in a large reactor scale, however, still presents many scientific challenges despite the many years of research and steady advances in magnetic confinement approaches.

Antarctic surface temperature and elevation during the Last Glacial Maximum
Prof. Jinho Ahn
Here, we reconstruct the magnitude and spatial pattern of Last Glacial Maximum surface cooling in Antarctica using borehole thermometry and firn properties in seven ice cores.
Unprecedented Noncanonical Features of the Nonlinear Nonribosomal Peptide Synthetase Assembly Line f...
Prof. Yeo Joon Yoon
Systematic inactivation of nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) domains and translocation of the thioesterase (TE) domain revealed several unprecedented nonlinear NRPS assembly processes during the biosynthesis of the cyclodepsipeptide WS9326A in Streptomyces sp. SNM55.
Coordinate regulation of the senescent state by selective autophagy
Prof. Chanhee Kang
Cellular senescence is a complex stress response implicated in aging. Autophagy can suppress senescence but is counterintuitively necessary for full senescence.
The SARS-CoV-2 RNA interactome
Prof. V. Narry Kim
SARS-CoV-2 is an RNA virus whose success as a pathogen relies on its abilities to repurpose host RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) and to evade antiviral RBPs.
Disease-specific eQTL screening reveals an anti-fibrotic effect of AGXT2 in non-alcoholic fatty live...
Prof. Won Kim
Genome-wide association studies have revealed a limited contribution of genomic variants to the disease, requiring alternative but robust approaches to identify disease-associated variants and genes.
Primate ventral striatum maintains neural representations of the value of previously rewarded object...
Prof. Hyoung F. Kim
The ventral striatum (VS) is considered a key region that flexibly updates recent changes in reward values for habit learning.
High–load capacity origami transformable wheel
Prof. Kyu-Jin Cho
Composite membrane origami has been an efficient and effective method for constructing transformable mechanisms while considerably simplifying their design, fabrication, and assembly; however, its limited load-bearing capability has restricted its application potential.
Professor Byung-Gon Chun's Research Team develop the World Leading Fuzzing Technology That Finds Key...
Prof. Byung-Gon Chun
Professor Byung-Gon Chun and Dr. Youngseok Yang of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Seoul National University developed a multi-transaction differential fuzzer to find Ethereum consensus bugs through their joint research with Professor Taesoo Kim of the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Akkermansia muciniphila secretes a glucagon-like peptide-1-inducing protein that improves glucose ho...
Prof. GwangPyo Ko
The gut microbiota, which includes Akkermansia muciniphila, is known to modulate energy metabolism, glucose tolerance, immune system maturation and function in humans.
Direct radiative forcing of biomass burning aerosols from the extensive Australian wildfires in 2019...
Prof. Sujong Jeong
In 2019, an unusually strong positive Indian Ocean Dipole spawned hot and dry weather in southeastern Australia, which promoted devastating wildfires in the period from September 2019 to February 2020.
Three-dimensional nanoprinting via charged aerosol jets
Prof. Mansoo Choi
Here we introduce a technique for direct 3D printing of arrays of metal nanostructures with flexible geometry and feature sizes down to hundreds of nanometres, using various materials.
Overlimiting Current in Nonuniform Arrays of Microchannels: Recirculating Flow and Anticrystallizati...
Prof. Sung Jae Kim
Overlimiting current (OLC) through electrolytes interfaced with perm-selective membranes has been extensively researched for understanding fundamental nano-electrokinetics and developing efficient engineering applications.
